Fight against the 'vampire fish'

7 posts in this topic

Wildlife workers are going to insert poisonous pesticides into a stream near Lake Michigan as they try to kill an invasive breed of 'vampire fish' that suck the blood out of other fish.

Adult sea lampreys, which reach lengths of 2 to 3 feet, resemble eels but behave more like leeches.

With round, disk-like mouths and sharp teeth, they latch onto fish and suck out their blood and other bodily fluids, killing or severely weakening the hosts.

They are part of the natural order KoS... But not natural in the great lakes. Sea Lampreys were able to access the great lakes because of manmade channels and locks for shipping.
